Funny Halloween and Horror Movies to Lighten the Mood

October 03, 2022

Edward's Topiary Designs T-Shirt

It's almost October once again. Halloween is just around the corner, and the leaves are beginning to fall. Maybe it's just me, but this all seems to happen around the same time every year. Spooky!

If you're into Halloween and everything the autumn season brings, then you're probably a fan of scary movies. While we love a good horror, you can't forget about all of the incredibly funny Halloween movies too.

From Tim Burton to the Addams Family, there's a huge selection of Halloween comedies to take the edge off when you're feeling a little too spooked.

So just in time for pumpkin season, here's our list of the best funny Halloween movies.

The Lost Boys

 Max's Video Store T-Shirt

A classic comedy horror flick featuring everybody's two favorite Coreys—Feldman and Haim. It's got everything you love: horror comics, supernatural powers, and a video store run by a vampire. Think Peter Pan meets the undead.

Army of Darkness

The S-Mart Boomstick T-Shirt 

The movie that answers the question most guys have probably had:what if I were transported to the Middle Ages with a shotgun? This campy horror from the Evil Dead series follows Ash and his boomstick as he comically battles an army of the dead in 1300 A.D. Now a certified cult classic, Army of Darkness has spawned some equally fun sequels, too.

Hocus Pocus 

Just A Bunch Of Hocus Pocus T-Shirt

One of the films that made Sarah Jessica Parker a star, Hocus Pocus, is a hilarious 90s classic about accidentally awakening a trio of child-eating witches who threaten to take over the world. According to our special sources, there's even a remake in the works—so stay tuned.


Handbook For The Recently Deceased T-Shirt

No list of funny Halloween movies would be complete without this Tim Burton haunted mansion masterpiece. A tale of quirky ghosts trying to haunt an annoying family into moving out of their house, Beetlejuice is also known as an all-time popular Halloween costume inspiration.


The Goonies


 This one might not count ashorror to the true connoisseur, but it certainly has its spooky moments. Sloth definitely scared us as kids. But it's got laughs, too—who can forget the iconic truffle shuffle? Some familiar faces like Sean Astin star in this journey about adventurous kids tracking down the treasure of old Chester Copperpot.

Little Shop of Horrors

Seymour's Plant Food T-Shirt

Seymour's Plant Food: sounds innocent enough, right? Guess again. This horror comedy stars Rick Moranis as a flower shop employee who discovers a mysterious plant that feeds only on human blood. 

Shaun of the Dead

Winchester Tavern T-Shirt

"You've got red on you." Shaun of the Dead isn't just one of the funniest horror movies—it's one of the funniest movies, period. This one makes us want to have a nice pint at the Winchester Tavern. 

American Psycho

Restaurant Dorsia T-Shirt

If you're part of a younger audience, then you might know this flick primarily from the memes. Whether it's getting reservations at Dorsia or the mud soup and chocolate arugula at Texarkana, this movie has some lines that still make us chuckle. 

Practical Magic

Midnight Margaritas T-Shirt

"Since when is being a slut a crime in this family?" Practical Magic pairs up Sandra Bullock and Nicole Kidman in what's potentially the casting duo of the decade. Equal parts rom-com, fantasy, and comedy, the two are descendants of witches using magic to destroy an evil spirit that threatens their family.

Scary Movie 


Rarely has there been a movie title as misleading as the horror-parody classic Scary Movie. You might not jump out of your seat, but you will bust a gut laughing at this Wayans brothers’ hit.

Teen Wolf

Air Wolf T-Shirt

Being a teen is hard enough already, let alone when you're growing up a werewolf, too. Michael J. Fox stars in this spoof on the coming-of-age genre, mixing supernatural monster mayhem with basketball. Forget Air Jordan—it's Air Wolf. 

The Frighteners

 Frank Bannister Psychic Investigator T-Shirt

Before Peter Jackson made Lord of the Rings, he made some awesome funny horror movies. This film about a guy who can communicate with the dead wasn't a hit when it was released in 1996, but has since become a cult favorite. 


 Pneumatic Transit T-Shirt

What do we really need to say about this one? If you don't at least know the words to the theme song, then you've probably been living under a rock. Here's a cool fact, though: you can actually visit the real-life pneumatic transit station from the movie in NYC. 

Edward Scissorhands


Here's another Tim Burton comedy horror spectacle to make our list. About a man with scissors for hands who trims hedges into topiaries, it's easily one of the quirkiest fantasy romance films of all time.

Casper the Friendly Ghost

 Whipstaff Manor Halloween Party T-Shirt

Casper, everyone's favorite charming poltergeist, stars in a whole range of movies and TV shows. For a Halloween movie binge-watching session, take your pick and enjoy the trip to Whipstaff Manor.


The Addams Family

 Beware of the Thing T-Shirt

This 1991 interpretation of the classic spooky cartoon family, this one reintroduced audiences to the hilarious likes of Uncle Fester and the Thing. The sequels have some great moments, too, like the burning of Camp Chippewa in the 1993 follow-up Addams Family Values.

The Blob

 Downington Diner T-Shirt

It's up for debate which version of the Blob is best: the 50s original or the 80s remake. Personally, we say watch them both. Up until recently, folks interested in a somewhat-weird film nostalgia road trip could even eat at the Downington Diner featured in the original movie.

It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown

I Believe In The Great Pumpkin T-Shirt

I don't know about you, but I believe in the great pumpkin. This Halloween special doesn't get as much attention as the Charlie Brown Christmas special, but we think that ought to change. The Great Pumpkin only brings toys to true believers, so you'd better stay faithful!


So there you have it: our list of the best funny Halloween movies, perfect for watching while you hide in the basement and ignore the trick-or-treaters knocking on your door. And while you're at it, why not wear one of our Halloween collection t-shirts? They're so great, it's almost scary.
